Aradale 👻👻👻

Let Us tell you:
Aradale Lunatic Asylum built to house the mentally ill or insane as you would say back on those days. Purposely built on a mountain right here in Ararat, Vic AU with the belief that any winds from the south had a calming, healing effect on their patients and would basically help them heal from their mental illness. Aradale Asylum has two sister facilities: one at Kew the other at Beechworth, both also in Victoria, AU.

Opened in 1867 to house up a large number of patients until its closure in 1993, however one ward remained open for another couple of years thereafter. The building itself comprised of 63 building to make up Aradale, meaning it had to be self sufficient with 30ha Vineyard and their very own winery. Extensive training facilities and 4ha lavender farm. Livestock and own piggery as well as a market would have also been needed! Additionally of course crops and gardens for self grown varieties of food.

The rest is for you to explore (and there is heaps!), broaden your knowledge and experience whatever might happen… 👻
We had a ball and our guides get the thumbs up!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Why I somewhat think that it can be seriously over the top to plan an entire year, filled out with goals to achieve and changes to be made – I do believe to have a small amount of things I either want to work towards, achieve or simply to have new things i would like to try out.

For this year, I have decided to do more Studies, this time focusing on Equines, horses and their nutrition, the majority of girls love horses, right?

In addition I already have looked into becoming a qualified Pilates + Yoga Instructor … the full outlook and intentions are still being kept under wraps. However, as it does qualify to be within the Fitness category of this Lifestyle Blog, I can tell you that my goal in #2016 is to ride the point-to-point two-hundred-and-ten Gold Fields Track with my partner of three year, yup… he is the kind of laid back, outdoorsy, adventure seeking kinda guy with enough charm and sense of humor to put comedians to shame!

Let 2016 begin …
